This is one of the MANY reasons why I got OUT of the modeling industry!

The insanely embarrassing poses in this link remind me of how silly the whole thing was:


We would have to sit in a grueling position for hours on end, without food or water.  Sometimes it was freezing or super hot outside. 

At 17-years-old, my agent told me to eat cotton balls because they expand in your stomach and fend off hunger!?

I am 5'9" tall and weighed 120 lbs, but he said to me, "You SERIOUSLY need to lose weight if you want to make it."

And just like that, I was O-U-T!!!  For old time's sake, here's a pic of a MUCH skinnier me in a silly pose! ;)
